Good point (though having to reduce 6 arguments to 0 or a larger AP pool is still a big disadvantage). I think the original discussion was about multiple target penalties (i.e., penalties for attacking several targets in a single exchange) not multiple attacker penalties (-3 per extra attacker). I might waive the former for an appropriate argument that targets 2 or more opponents, but not necessarily the latter.
